Great Osso Bucco

The pasta bolognese as a starter portion and the Osso Bucco were excellent. Service was also great. Returned the next week and had the same dinner. Again simply great

Small restaurant (need reservations) with excellent Italian cuisine. Moe and his wife Mona make everyone feel at home. The menu (with daily specials) is outstanding. My only criticism is their billing system. The bills are hand written with the drinks on the back and the food on the front. Hard to decipher especially with erasures and changes. The waiter staff...

This restaurant has been here forever, the food is always good. The service is excellent. I just wish they would change the decor, it needs a refresh. Nice owners.

I'm difficult - gluten free vegetarian - so I never expect much. This restaurant was recommended by an Italian friend who is VERY fussy about his meals. He recently discovered the place and has since become a regular. It was easy to see why. The service was genuinely friendly/helpful and I chose the grouper with olive/tomato sauce. We had spumoni...

This Italian eatery is in a strip center anchored by a Publix. Parking is somewhat difficult as it is shared with several other adjacent stores. They tend to advertise a 10% discount on your bill if you present the provided coupon. Interesting interior, with good service. We felt the food was average and not up to the challenge of other...

This restaurant is located in a srtip mall in Bonita Springs. It is a very attractive and somewhat intimate restaurant. They serve excellent New York style Italian cuisine and very nice fresh fish dishes. We have only been there once, but really liked it and plan on returning next time we are in Naples.

Open only for dinner, this white table cloth restaurant has a wonderful menu and wine list. The service was very attentive. Our party of eight all had outstandingly delicious meals. The sea bass was the best meal one in our party exclaimed. Tasted by another guest reassured it was amazing. The seafood pasta dish was covered abundantly with a tasty... More

We ate here on a Tuesday night and it was very busy and reservations are a must. The menu has some great choices and I had veal, which was very good. A number of pasta dishes as you can imagine. Nice salads. Wonderful deserts. The waiter was outstanding and made the evening fun. The place is small so the table... More
